In response to the political “boys club,” 26-year-old Jessica Grounds decided women needed an apparatus for political success. She co-founded Running Start, an organization designed to inspire political involvement and leadership in young women. Grounds, now the executive director of Running Start, believes in taking action. “The most powerful way to impact the community is through politics,” she says. “Policy affects your life.”
